The presidential candidate of the Peoples Democratic Party, Atiku Abubakar, has disclosed that his intimate relationship with National Assembly members when he was Nigeria’s vice-president, stopped former President Olusegun Obasanjo’s third-term bid.


He said the relationship enabled him and some NASS members to stop Obasanjo’s third-term agenda, he said, he was eager to re-ignite with the NASS candidates after his election as president, along with their own successful election.

This, Atiku noted, would enable them better function and deepen democracy.
